    Hello all!!
    I've been browsing this site for quite awhile and finally decided to make it official.

    There is a ton of great information here

    We live in Portland, OR. We have started a small backyard flock and currently have 4 hens.
    1 Buff Brahma
    1 Blue Andalusian
    1 Welsummer
    1 Easter Egger (maybe)

    They are all about 5 months old now and came from my daughters kindergarten class so their lines are suspect. :)

    Look forward to getting to know everyone.

    They should be old enough to identify if you post individual photos of them - face showing comb, and side view standing to check the hackle feathers etc. Clear, close ups are best.
    You can give us a crack at them and/or post at "what gender or breed is this?"

    I will try and get some pics of them this weekend and post them up. Hopefully you all can help us to figure out what they are. [​IMG]
